Есть ли что-то особенное, что нужно сделать, чтобы датчик температуры масла работал?
или если здесь есть возможность запрограммировать другой датчик (левый датчик)
на кластере красной иглы

Soo regarding what’s been mentioned about red needle pocket gauges not being modifiable...I found this picture of a car being wrecked here in Australia and the cluster shows a different right pocket gauge. Obviously this is with minimal power mode with doors open but push button not started...

Is this a random error or potential hope for progress in the near future?

Thats a default hybrid gauge. It shows up even when not configured on a vehicle with low battery conditions and you still cant modify it on the user end from the wheel like the 2018.5+ .

Regarding the pocket gauges, it either off or on (With Oil Temperature and Battery voltage)?
is there anyone that have successfully manged to get the Oil Temperature gauge to work as intended on the red needle cluster?

or is there any successfully retrofitting of the white needle cluster in the older cars ?
is there any 2018.05 cluster that have changeble pocket gauges (and have red needle)?
